While writing the Tides of Blood
review a few months ago, I found that screenshots simply weren't doing enough to convey the mechanics that I wanted to talk about. This led me to try recording some gifs, which turned out to be a great solution and a great way to make the material more engaging in general.
One of the things I have struggled with while writing reviews has been discussing heroes, particularly for maps where painstaking attention to hero design was a hallmark of the game. Hero design is a deep topic on which I have many opinions, and it isn't something I want to delve into in every review. But, with video content, now the heroes can speak for themselves.
Over the coming months, I will be revisiting and updating several reviews which I feel were sorely missing appreciation of their heroes, notably Advent of the Zenith
and Age of Myths
